Emir Ramic, a Bosniak-Canadian activist, has two faces. In his “Western” guise he heads a Bosnian-Muslim propaganda front known as the Institute for the Research of Genocide - Canada. His true values and his Weltanschauung are revealed in the fact that he is a member of the editorial board and a contributor (together with Norman Finkelstein) to the magazine Korak (“Step”), published in Sarajevo by the veterans’ association of the Bosnian-Muslim Army (ABiH). Korak is a rabidly antisemitic publication, deeply imbued with the spirit of Islamic fundamentalism. The Board of Ramic’s “Canadian Institute” includes Asaf Dzanic, chief editor of that magazine, as well as Elie Wiesel and a few other deluded luminaries.
Emir Ramic’s magazine in its issue No. 13 has an interesting article, “Basic Principles of the Law of War in Islam” which asserts, matter-of-factly, that "Jihad is a just and legitimate fight against aggression and a struggle in protection of human rights and freedoms." (p. 15) Dixit. The author of this article is an extreme Jihadist, Enes Ljevakovic. His brother, Irfan Ljevakovic, is on the supervisory board of the Third World Relief Agency (TWRA), an Islamic terrorist front cited by the CIA Report on NGOs With Terror Links. Irfan Ljevakovic is wanted for questioning by the Austrian police for recruiting Jihadists in Austria. According to a Washington Post report “Bosnian sources said [Irfan] Ljevakovic is one of several influential officials protecting the Islamic fighters who remain in Bosnia in violation of the Dayton peace accord.” Irfan Ljevakovic is the youngest of five Ljevakovic brothers – others being Zijad, Ekrem, Advan, and Jihad-Enes – and all of them have been active in Alija Izetbegovic’s extremist project. Politically managed by Zijad, Enes’s role has been to provide ideological foundation for “stealth” Jihad.
On p. 93 of the same issue there is a breathtaking piece of anti-Israeli bile. It is in “Bosnian,” but even a non-native speaker will understand the title: IZRAELSKI REŽIM JE TERORISTICKI, by Fikret Muslimovic, a leading light of Ramic's magazine. This article could have been published in Gaza; it is a tad too hard-core for Ramallah, though... Muslimovic was a senior officer in the Bosnian-Muslim army during the 1992-95 war. According to the leading Sarajevo weekly "Dani", during that war Muslimovic was in charge of Islamist indoctrination of the Bosnian-Muslim army. A former military intelligence officer during Tito's communist dictatorship, Emin Ramic's colleague became in the 1990's the "ayatollah" of Izetbegovic's Jihadist warriors
In the same spirit, on p. 99 of the same issue of "Korak" we have another piece of Jew-hating venom: “Who is responsible for the blockade and massacre of the inhabitants of Gaza?” by one Reza Burdzi. If you watch the Palestinian Authority TV, you need not read it.
Other issues of Ramic’s magazine are no less worthy of scrutiny, e.g. No. 14, which has Norman Finkelstein’s THE BLOODSHED IN GAZA.The late Chairman Arafat would be proud of “Korak” No. 16 (2009): PALESTINE AND AL-QUDS AS THE SYMBOL OF ALL MUSLIMS OF THE WORLD, by Džemal Najetović.
Ramic’s magazine wholeheartedly supports “I’m-proud-to-be-a-holocaust-denier” Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The Muslim veterans’ organ in its issue No. 15 has an Iranian propaganda diatribe, THE FAILURE OF THE ANTI-IRANIAN SCENARIO by Fariba Farshidi. Well worth a read for those proficient in “Bosnian,” although if you read the state-approved press in Farsi you need not bother repeat the experience.
For the many ethnusiastic supporters of Israel’s eradication from the map, Emir Ramic’s magazine has a heart-warming article in issue No. 12: SIXTY YEARS SINCE THE PALESTINIAN CATASTROPHE, by Dr. Džemal Najetovic.
The list goes on, predictably, from one issue to another, from one author to another, from one lie to another, from one antisemitic and Serb-hating orgasm to another. On Facebook, Ramic belongs to a group called “Thank Allah I’m not Serbian,” which has burning Serbian and Israeli flags as a group picture.
Ramic's magazine site is hosted by the veterans’ association of the Bosnian-Muslim Army (ABiH). This site also includes some other articles with interesting titles, such as “Crimes Against Civilians in the Gaza Strip.”
THIS is the real face and the hidden agenda of Emir Ramic’s “Canadian Genocide Institute.” As of now he remains on the editorial board of "Korak," the magazine publishing this hate-filled drivel. As of now, Mr. Dzanic, editor-in-chief of the said publication, remains on the board of Amir Ramic’s “Canadian Genocide Institute.” Check out the links and other facts before they are removed, as they probably will be in view of Mr. Ramic’s pending (and well deserved) legal troubles.
Elie Wiesel & Co. are in some interesting company indeed. Watch this space. There's more to come. Much more...
DEFENDER OF CONVICTED WAR CRIMINALS -- Lest it be overlooked, Emir Ramic has expressed his support for Ilija Jurisic, a Bosnian war criminal who was sentenced to 12 years in prison for his part in the murder of 51 young conscripts (of six different nationalities) in Tuzla in 1992.
ON A FRIVOLOUS NOTE... -- Speaking of Emir Ramic’s creative talents, it is noteworthy that he is on the editorial board of Bosniaks.net, which featured a false story that Paris Hilton converted to Islam, supposed quotes and all (including a hysterical PhotoShop pic).That story is precisely as true as that of the Srebrenica “genocide.” It shows not only Ramic’s true intent, but also his utter lack of credibility.
